Find out what our past summer interns worked on during their internships at the Reserve Bank and why they would recommend applying for an internship with us:
We’re not your typical central bank; therefore we don’t take a typical approach to recruitment. Instead of the usual campus presentations, we visit universities in March to have an informal chat over coffee. Don’t be afraid to pick our brains about what it’s like to work at the Reserve Bank or ask any other questions you have.
Following the application closing date, we interview the shortlisted applicants on campus. These interviews usually take place in late March.
Our campus recruitment team consists of recent graduates. They visit Auckland University, Waikato University, Victoria University, Canterbury University and Otago University in early March each year. Massey Albany students are invited to attend the campus visit at Auckland University and Lincoln students are invited to attend the campus visit at Canterbury University.
Applications for the 2019 Summer Internship Recruitment Round are open from 14 January 2019.
Please note we may start considering applications as they are received so encourage you to apply early.
To apply, please submit the following information through our online system by 5pm Monday 11 March 2019.
